    After a friend and me tested this for hours we finally figured out that you have to select the Save Display Picture option, which saves it to the memory card or on your phone, then the avatars work fine.
    Where can I find that option?

    This will only save my own picture to my memory card. Won't help... Guess it's a server problem.

    It seems as though a lot of people are having problems with their avatars on the new BBM 5.0. I installed the new BBM last night and changed my avatar. However, the person I was chatting with said that she didn't see my avatar, but rather my Facebook profile pic.

    Then, when I updated my Status Message, she was was able to see the new avatar.

    BUT....

    I had a couple of friends download the new BBM this morning. They weren't able to see ANY avatar beside my name - no Facebook profile pig, nor the one that I chose manually. What gives?!?! All they see is blank outline.

    Anyone else having this problem?

    Is there a fix???
    Have you do a remote backup ? if you have , which email address you are using ? If you have more than 1 email add , just use 1 only , and pick from a common email add (yahoo , gmail etc ) . And from message folder select option email setting , message service ? choose email add other than the one you are registering . Email reconciliation ? choose the same email add that you are registering . Hope this will help 'cause it work on mine

    I have done a remote backup, but it was with 3 of my emails. When I go into the Remote Backup options, it says that they are all registered. How do you unregister an email - I can't find the option....???

    LOL. Typical blackberry to always have some issues with newly released software. But then again I think the program's strong points greatly outweigh these minor nuisances.

    OK, folks.....here's what I did to solve the "not receiving avatar" problem. For those recipients who were not receiving my avatar, all using BBM 5.0, I simply had them delete me from their BBM contact list, then I reinvited them to hook up with me, and voila, my avatar showed up on their BBM contact list, and when linked to the Contact application, also showed up there.
    Whether or not this was also due to my previously trying the Host Routing Table method with a battery pull (Quickpull), I don't know, but nothing clicked until we did the delete/reinvite method.

    Yeah I saw that and gave it a shot to no avail
    that option has to be set on the other end in order for your avatar or pic to display the way you want it... just because you want to display a certain avatar or pic doesn't mean that everyone you correspond with wants to see it as well. perhaps they have a custom icon for you that they want to keep, like that picture of you dancing half-naked on the coffee table to Tone-Loc after 15 shots of tequila and as many beers on your last birthday, right before you passed out from alcohol poisoning and they had to rush you to the hospital! ahh, fun times indeed!

    I posted this in the other bbm thread so i will post it here and hope it will help someone with their issue.

    I have had this issue to. Our issue seemed to be linked to fb. Fb allows you to link your BBM profile to it. So if you choose that option it will show their Fb profile pic instead of the BBM pic but the other person wont see it. So heres what we did to fix the profile pic from not showing...

    1. I had the person delete me from thier bbm.

    2. I deleted them from my BBM.

    3. They uninstalled/deleted FB.

    4. They rebooted/battery pulled device.

    5. They uninstalled/deleted BBM.

    6. They rebooted/battery pulled device.

    7. They reinstalled BBM and then i added them back to my BBM.


    Thats when i was able to see thier profile picture. This was after a week of trying other things to fix this problem. They added Fb back after BBM was working again. This worked for 3 of my friends on my BBM. They all had the curve. Dont think the model of the phone would have anything to do with no being able to see the pic though. Oh i had them reinstall BBM through blackberry world application.

    that's cool but I don't have fb nor do any of my contacts. I have a feeling it's yet another glitch in BBM 5.
